    The barrel is blurred because it's vibrating like a Rotosound bass string at the Headbanger's Ball---

    My little Belgian .458WM---

    I bought this 1960-61 Browning and 80 rounds of .458WM for $600 two weeks ago and finally found some range time today.
    The Williams rear sight is not my idea---I don't like 'em---but it's zeroed at 100 yards, so I won't complain right now.
    If you are tired of trying to feed your Poodle-shooter at $!.00 per round, just step up to the Poodle-vaporiser at about $4.50
    I highly recommend it.

    Just the thing an orthopedic surgeon needs to help him out with the kid's tuition.

    Holy guacamole!

    A little heavy for whitetail, but...I'm sure it'll do! Very nice looking firearm.

    Yes, it's true. I hates me some uppity rodent.

    Here is a little tip on shooting a heavy rifle. If you'd adjust your grip and stance a bit it will tame that beast significantly. Take a wider stance, weight forward. Grip the forend TIGHTLY, 80% of your grip is on the forend 20 percent is on your trigger hand. Wrap your fingers all the way around so they are touching the barrel don't "pinch" the forend and you'll reduce your muzzle climb by 90% and your felt recoil by 50%.

    Enjoy that rifle, it's a beauty!

    Oh yeah if you are going to shoot a heavy rifle enough to get good with it. You are going to have to reload otherwise it's going to break the bank!

    That's how-to advice from a guy who can double-tap with a double-rifle shooting even bigger cartridges. :)

    H&H---
    I will certainly try your suggestions, especially the advice on the forward grip, since I was absolutely pinching the forestock at the range.
    The rifle is actually lighter than my .375 H&H Model 70 and this made me a bit
    nervous in the beginning. I spent the first few shots fussing with head position to make sure the comb didn't come up under my cheekbone and push it out the top of my skull.
    I am looking forward to the next session where I will set the camera to shoot multiples from the tripod---maybe I'll look less like Gumby.

    That's a fine rifle and at a very good price as well! I just got a Ruger No. 1 in .458 Lott, and I've shot a few 350 grain handloads... I thought it would take some getting used to... but instead I fell in love with the big bores methinks. Can't wait to get out and shoot it again. I do like the looks of that rear sight, although I've never used one myself.

    How much does that rifle weigh?

    I knew this guy who was a dental technician and his trade was making false teeth and dental plates. When he retired his business associates bought him as a retirement gift a Ruger Model 77 in 458 Winchester. I guess they thought he could keep his loose dental work in order!
